There is no end to the complaints about the environment of these quarantine centers. Through social media, pictures of the unhealthy environment, filthy toilets and overflowing garbage baskets are always seen.
A 90-year-old woman is admitted to one such quarantine center in Shanghai. His grandson told the BBC that his grandmother had to deal with the unhealthy environment at the quarantine center. He can’t sleep properly. Even having to take care of yourself.
The woman, who did not want to be identified, said one of her grandmother’s legs was paralyzed. As a result, he cannot walk properly. Meanwhile, the toilet at the quarantine center is more than 100 meters away from his bed. He is trying to drink less water to avoid going to the toilet.
On April 18, the elderly woman became positive. Since then he has been admitted to the quarantine center. It has become a kind of difficulty to rest there. The lights are on 24 hours a day. As a result, he cannot sleep properly.
His grandson said that his grandmother was not getting proper treatment at the quarantine center.
Fortunately, a woman is helping him in various tasks. Without that woman, his grandmother would not have survived.
“Every time I call her, she says, ‘I want to go home, I want to go home soon,'” said her grandson.
Meanwhile, her husband was also infected with corona at home. The grandson is afraid that he will be taken to the quarantine center in such a situation. According to him, if Dada is also taken for quarantine, it will be like ‘death penalty’.
The woman said her grandfather could not get out of bed now. Suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure. Can’t go to the toilet alone. Adults will not be able to adapt to the environment of the quarantine center. Asking the question, he said, ‘How will he (grandfather) survive there?’
However, another resident of Shanghai has a slightly different opinion about this. He said, ‘Elderly people cannot be taken to the hospital for treatment during normal time like in Corona. Quarantine centers are not as good as hospitals. But I think the government is doing its best to treat them. ”
At least 338 people have died in Corona since the beginning of March in Shanghai. According to Chinese government officials, almost all of the victims were already suffering from physical complications and had not been vaccinated against corona.
